Comment: Oh, the BIG algorithm again (Score 0) 372

Blogged about this a while ago: "A really bad idea is to apply a really BIG algorithm to find out who matches with whom. Often, in online dating such an algorithm is based on what psychologists think or found out or think to have found out. This is the second step in the ivory tower idea that you know better for your users. It is an arrogant idea and it will not work because you compete with evolution. Humans are trained by evolution to find the right partner. They will beat any algorithm conceived by psychologists and computer scientists." -- http://viibee.com/ online dating is fun again
